Hide was an excellent tour guide. We did a full day tour of Tokyo and he brought us to several popular sites in addition to a number of interesting places we would not have known about otherwise. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend booking a tour with Hide!

This is a continuation of our time with Hide and is the 2nd day we spent with him. This was a little more leisurely of a day yet still visiting the major highlights. We went to Tsukiji Fish Market (Tsukiji outer market) and then the Tokyo Skytree (tallest building in the world). Next we visited Harajuku to do a little window shopping and taking in the unique sights. Lastly, we ended at Shibuya to watch the famous crossing. Unfortunately, we were a little early in the afternoon so it wasn't crazy busy

We booked Hide for two days, allowing us to see so much that Tokyo has to offer. The first day we spent visiting the older sites of Tokyo. We spent time at Asakusa: Old Sensoji temple, Ueno Park, Akihabara, Imperial Palace & the East Garden, then off to Yanaka which is an older residential neighborhood and quite charming. Lastly we ended in Ginza (high-end shopping street) and did a little shopping. Hide keeps the tour moving at a good pace and made sure we stayed on time without feeling rushed.

We were fortunate enough to have Hide as our guide in Tokyo for two days, and our family really enjoyed his depth of knowledge. He was able to show us so many different sites in such an efficient manner, but was also great at accommodating activities we came across and wanted to try/explore further. Hide was exceptionally professional and friendly, and we would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a guide in Tokyo.

This was the first of two full day tours with Hide. He was the perfect guide: very knowledgable about history, religion and culture. His English is excellent. We recommend him wholeheartedly.

Thank you Hide for showing us Tokyo like a local! The city can be incredibly overwhelming but thanks to Hide we were able to confidently navigate Tokyo on our own after his tour. He catered the tour to our preferences and made sure that our 3 kids (17, 15, 13) were able to see sites that interested them. We would highly recommend his tour to family and friends! Hope to see you again Hide!!

Hidefumi was an absolute pleasure. He was flexible and catered his tour to our preferences, was fun, was knowledgeable, and was enthusiastic. We had a blast just getting to know him during our tour today. Additionally, he was able to provide incredible knowledge both about the sites and areas we were visiting and about Japan (and Japanese history). We cannot speak highly enough of Hidefumi and would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone visiting Tokyo.

Mark JohnsonUnited States
Hide was a brilliant tour guide. We squeezed in a lot of Tokyo. Very adaptable to what we wanted to do and recommended some great food stops along the way. In the 6 hours we saw many micro cultures in Tokyo which was really cool.
Our tour with Hide was very interesting and informative. We got a very good perspective of Japanese culture and an excellent array of important areas in Japan. It was good value. We would not have been able to see as much as we did on our own.
Jeremy PagdenUnited States
If you have limited time to explore Tokyo this is a fantastic way to go. Hidefumi was an informative yet relaxed guide and made the entire (long) day worthwhile. Highly recommended.

Our tour with Hide was excellent! Hide was really good at helping us to appreciate the new and old of Tokyo and he gave us a great overview of the city which was really helpful for our first visit to Tokyo. We would definitely not have had the same experience exploring by ourselves!
